Hi Bradner.

Minidump folder is missing? Make it sure that you configured minidump recording during BSODs.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Otherwise you may check the the dumps yourself too, if you like.

You may make a folder manually in the root and wait for the next BSOD.
